On Feb. 2, 2018, Edward Schenk will present on "Electronic Monitoring in the Workplace: Social Media to Sociometrics – Balancing Employer Interests & Employee Privacy Rights" at the North Carolina Association of Defense Attorneys Winter Workshop. See below for a description of Edward's presentation.
Monitoring employee electronic activity on devices, company networks and web platforms is increasingly common and occurs in many different forms. While the practice of monitoring activity through email, the Internet, or GPS location has become commonplace for many, a number of employers are going further and enhancing the type and sophistication of their monitoring techniques. As employers look to protect and promote legitimate business interests through these practices, employees often have questions about their privacy rights and expectations. This program explores the spectrum of electronic monitoring techniques and methods, reviews applicable state and federal privacy, employment, and computer trespass laws, and provides practical guidance for developing compliant personnel policies and procedures.
